had hurricane sandy in there. you had the seasonal adjustments that recently changed how they equate the unemployment rate, etcete etcetera. so i think overall that this number has a great potential to miss. we saw a nice report out of adp yesterday morning. it really didn't have as big of an effect as you might think because of the great rally the day before. so to your point, i actually think that there's a little bit of risk that if we miss on the downside, we can be bullish here. if we miss on the sps, many of the traders are looking at a s&p future, so many people think we have to go up and test 1474.51. that would by about a 150-point rally. but -- and if you look at the volatility and the vision being at a low level, tlt a lot of the market numbers are telling us that we should rally. but, again, this number is going to be a very interesting one to watch after last month's number was a bit on the dull side. the one thing i would say is it's nice to get back to watching normality in the market rather than watching d.c. all day. >> i think we're still there. and the deal that we

important. we had to get through the hurricane sandy issue in terms of what impact that may have had. so people always make adjustments. it could be seasonal, seasonal employment numbers up or down, concerns about -- >> but will today's number be seen through the prism of the yesterday? >> i think not only through the prism of the comments of the fed coming through but against the backdrop of what we've been going through with the post presidential election, rejuvenated focus on what's going to have to happen. the concerns about the negative impacts of tightening of tax environment and spending cuts will be put against that context of what's going on in the growth environment. we've been acting as if growth has to follow behind what's been a very stimulus government both fiscally and mourn tearily and that any tightening is putting that at risk. i think any strength coming through in the unemployment numbers that we see today will perhaps take the edge off those concerns and it would be against that back drop i would emphasize it. >> it will be seen as the good news that it should be rae
depot and frank blake, the management here has been taking share aggressively and i bet the post-sandy rebuild will be terrific for business. i see another fantastic year for the home despot. disney with remarkably resilient espn numbers. i think the stock can go up 10% from here easily. it's already started to recover, meaningfully from the so-called disappointing quarter. that fourth quarter rally in the financials gave new life to jpmorgan, american express, travelers the insurance company up 21%. i don't know if these can maintain that pace. i'm not as bullish. jpmorgan seems to fail at these prices. fail the stock, not the company. the company is doing fine. unless they are allowed to return to shareholders, my hope, i fear the company won't be able to repeat the performance. american express seems tapped out, prefer mastercard, visa and travellers is a fabulously run company. it's not one you expected expect to go up 21% over 21%. how about general electric? it advanced 17% despite downbeat chatter, analysts being too downbeat if you ask me. and an oil and gas kicker could be reb

and i were in shock to watch what happened in sandy hook. i immediately signed an executive order, we've got a school safety task force beginning to meet next week. i'm focusing on mental health, our school resource officers in school safety. and maybe some tougher penalties for firearms violations. but i don't think you'll see a lot of gun control bills in virginia, we're going to do what works and that's keeping kids in safe -- keep them safe in school with policies that are proven. >> do you reckon you're going to oppose what the white house is going to put out? >> i've got to wait and see what they're going to do. unfortunately, there was some immediate reaction by gun control advocates, i think, unfortunately to use this tragedy and -- in sandy hook as a reason to advocate any number of things that didn't have much to do with the facts of the case. we're going to do reasonable things. i think mental health is a big part of this. we went through this six years ago with the tragedy at virginia tech. we worked together on a bipartisan basis to improve our mental health laws and made
for me. i've got the hurricane sandy and analysts didn't have their act together. i think this year we see 8%, 10% earnings growth, even with the fiscal drag which i think is blown way out of proportion. >> because s&p capital is looking for 3% growth in the fourth quarter so you're talking about the year. scott? >> no, i'm talking about 2013. >> right. >> i totally agree with those estimates. we're going to get killed fourth quarter, but it's in the past. forget it. let's move forward. >> hey, rick, i'm going ask you a loaded question but i want your expertise on it. is there a bubble in the bond market? >> no, no. prices are lofty, but to me a bubble implies a very close to popping scenario. you talk about bubbles. when you think it's about ready to burst. it's frothy, but it's photoactualphotfrothy in actually a sean way and take the discussion we're having right now. the ecb tries to talk recovery, and things because the daxx and kaks are up, everything rowsy in europe. look at the unemployment rates. once again, the same scenario in u.s. if all you use is a barometer against econo
of the money makes its way into the pockets from the sandy relief. >> boy, so do i. my charitable trust is contributing. i agree with you. >> caller: we could use it in the pockets. two questions regarding adt. they went public in october. i got them at 36. now they went up to about 46 now. >> yes. nice. nice work. >> caller: thank you. i'm wondering, what is the actual difference? what i'm not sure of what's the difference between adt and i thought they split from tyco. i'm not sure what the difference is between the two. >> okay. you know, what i want to do is this. i have been wanting to analyze those. look, i think electronics security for adt. that's how you view that company. let me do a piece about what the parts are worth. i have been wanting to do it for a while. i will do it for you next week. steve in california. >> caller: boo-yah, jim, from sunny, warm mora bay, california. >> i could get over this cold, cough thing i have going but i would infect your family to be candid. what's up? >> caller: first, thank you for all you do. >> thank you! >> caller: i heard news corps wil
talking about deals. and sandy cutler's eden whether he purchased cooper industries. they generated huge gains for the acquirers. and highly unusual, that will continue to do so as earnings get reported. believe me, a mania when ceos said that they need to send the acquire up. remember to recall the tremendous breakups of 2012. and you remember abbott, marathon, conoco kraft. mondolese, international snack spinoff from kraft. a fast growing way to play emerging markets. these are all brought instant valuation hikes, companies that sit and wait for things to get better generally miss the best opportunities. what does mae west say? he who hesitates last. the only way for a company to get instant growth in a slow growth world is to buy another company and the only way to bring out value is to give the market the parts that it wants. these themes, banking, autos, housing, insurance, aerospace, china, energy, mobile technology, the government made me do it, and don't just stand there, do something group, and don't go hog wild while the bull roars, the bull and the bear, growls, meant to be a
catch ats that come along with ma sandy did in the northeast. >> it depends. quite frankly, with what you're looking at. in the north and east there are caveats related to sandy, because there was the interruption of flow and rebuilding efforts, but in the you have a different stories. it's all about fracking, natural gas, the increase in oil production and chemical production. the stuff that makes stuff, as we like to call it. >> why do you think freight has -- we look at transports overall. why is that? and i wonder if a fedex, for instance, when it comes to general freight came out with guidance better than we're getting, if that would change the picture? >> it would certainly. we're seeing a worldwide slowdown, but again it depends entirely on where you're looking. if you look at the union pacific, that stock has dramatically outperformed the rest of its peers, because it is moving, you know, look at the balkan in particular, hot spots in the industry. the balkan 18 months ago was producing 10 million barrels a monday in cruelty. now we're more than double that. as a result we've
to ask him about a developing national story regarding superstorm sandy and a staten island couple whose home was destroyed. as a result, all state has offered $10,000 on their claim because the insurer feels the home was destroyed due to flooding. the couple maintains it was wind that took their home. in the meantime, all state has used images of this couple's destroyed home in commercials about its hurricane response, and the couple is now considering legal action as a result. well, mr. wilson cancelled his appearance with us when he learned that this story would come up during our interview. we would like to say he's always welcome here on the "closing bell" and on cnbc in the future. we will take a break now. >> long-term trend or a one dark week wonder? google up about 4% this week on heels of its antitrust victory. should you seek out the stock in the google trade coming up. >>> also, is goldman sachs risking further damage to its brand? the investment bank's board accelerated compensation to save top executives millions in taxes before the fiscal cliff. we'll have a goldman debate
deal. they had this hurricane sandy relief mess, they're frustrated with baoehner. they tried to take a stand, but the biggest take away though nine republicans voted against boehner, no, ma'minated allen w kevin mccarthy voted for boehner, there's no real challenger to boehner. >> was this a near death experience? in other words, how tough did boehner worry about this? i know his public visage was very calm, he's not worried, you're quite right the other parts of the leadership were for him. how tough -- is this going to have an impact on mr. boehner's policies, does he become more conservative, robert costa? what happens here? >> he's trying to become more conservative. he went in front of the caucus and pledged not to have closed door meetings with the president any longer. he won't have the kind of grand bargain discussions anymore with the president. that was a real important reason he won a lot of conservative votes today, but he only won 220 votes so it's line herding cats in 2013. what is he going to do when it comes to the debt ceiling? i'm not sure he can count on his caucus
sandy. lots of people in the northeast need to make major repairs to their houses. i am a huge fan of home depot, as you know. since the show started, i am. i think it goes higher this year. even as it's trading at 18 times next year's earnings, right below its peak historical multiple of nineteen times earnings. the company is up against difficult comparisons. it did so well this time last year that the bar was set very high. that could make it harder to top. the big competitor, lowe's, seems to be -- although we got a back low today. and the street isn't convinced that lowe's is going to take them on. you know, look, home depot's run a lot. the difference between bank of america and home depot is simple. home depot is what i call a straight-a student. if it keeps getting as, this is good student. bank of america, it was a c-minus student that's becoming a b student. and that kind of improvement is the kind that we cheer for. the kind that the market tends to reward with a much higher share price. here's the bottom line -- looking at the two best performers in the dow jones confer
business too. u.s. chip is one of my favorites. don't forget sandy is going to be great. ag market is on fire, boardwalk partners, someone downgraded that today, really good yield. and facebook, i told you, when zuckerberg came on the conference and said we screwed up mobile, that was a chance to buy and i'm sticking with that stock and now i'm going to the bakken boo-yah, chris in north dakota, chris? >> caller: big boo-yah, love the show. >> well, i love where you're from, man. your oil production was up more than 50% year-over-year in north dakota. >> caller: hey, let's hope we can keep that going. >> i know you can, bisons, go ahead. >> caller: well, i've got five stocks here. first off, home street. hmst. >> okay. >> caller: next is goldman sachs, gs. >> okay. >> caller: ford, "f," cisco, co, and eaton, etn. >> we've done eaton, that's a manufacturer. goldman slacks, just a fantastic financial, it's really coming back. i think the stock goes to 180, not kidding. ford, looks like it's a keystone for a lot of portfolios, you know i'm a believer, cisco, technology, and here's the
from duction productio coming out. looking at earnings, too, to see what effect sandy, the debt ceiling, the fiscal cliff debates, what effect that's had on consumer behavior and lastly, we'd say we remain positive, but the markets have had a bit of a run here, we would expect a little bit of a breather. one area you could see catchup is gold and precious metals. >> all right, we've seen a hit there recently. michael, you're at the wheel. 30 seconds on the clock. >> keeping a close eye on facebook. it was obviously the post eer child for social media stocks last year. stock broke over 30 yesterday, 31 today. a lot of enthusiasm. keep a close eye on it. we're bullish on it longer term. second thing is herbalife, today was day two of the jihad between bill ackman and the company. we maintain a bullish stance. it's been a wild ride. still think it goes higher. last one is consumer stocks. kind of a mixed bag for holiday names today. we continue to have a bullish stance. >> all right. we will leave it there. gentlemen, thank you very much. we'll be watching all of those stories. hope to see
the fourth quarter, we had an election, the fiscal cliff and i think -- >> don't forget hurricane sandy. >> yeah, so you can say, hey, orders were a little bit slow but we're starting to see them pick up and every investor will go, yeah, that sounds about right and i think they will give them a pass. low expectations and the pass for the quarter. i think it will be a good quarter. >> rob, let's talk technical. i love technical strategy. how do you charts look to you based on the commentary you just heard on the fundamental side of it? >> maria, it lines up fairly well. if you look at where the weekly indicators are, they tend to track the one to two-quarter shifts and they are still building positively. our view is as you get into the latter part of the first quarter, the market is probably setting up for a more serious correction as you get into q2. one of the things that we're looking at is this rotation that's going on in the market. i think that's really the critical point to be focused on for investors and for viewers out there, and that is this rotation of the global growth themes

as a whole, we're looking at a 15.5% ride. if you access the insurance companies who are dealing with sandy ask some other issues, you're looking at about 40%. so you're going to really expect the strong earnings season. so the first half of the earnings season might be stronger than the second half. whereas the second half of the earnings season is labeled with technology. the first half is technologies and generally overall financial earnings are expected to be stronger year over year. telecoms will do fairly well. >> is that? >> i think a little easing and pricing pressure. there's still a global demand for telecom services. but i think that sector is quite immune. they do have some pricing power in that sector, as well. it's a little bit less into the consumer pressures, than let's say a technology services company. >> how much will -- if we get that sort of performance from telecomes and financials, how much does the sentiment they generate pull over, do you think? >> i think overall, earnings are going to surprise. i think if you're looking at a number around 3% right now, i think onc
